Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: as usual Jerry is left out

If this was a list of most technically proficient, etc. : maybe I could see Garcia left off the list . I have heard several very good guitarist, tell me he was "sloppy", "not a guitar players guitarist ", which I sort of understand . Hendrix, as far as the nuts and bolts of music is concerned , was limited . But of course , that is missing what was being SAID with his music , limits or not . I mean from a technical point of view someone like Joe Pass, could kick everyones ass .
Now I respect that sort of ability , but Jerry sounds like no other guitarist, totally unique, and instantly recognizable . And for those in tune with his art, and incredibly, fun, exciting, and deeply soulful player .
This list is more a popularity poll .
